Survey drawings of Messrs Pitt, Powell and Fripps' premises, Bridge Parade (5)
The Soane office Day Book for 24 January 1825 - 31 October 1826 records George Bailey as being in Bristol 'taking Plans &c of / Messrs Pitt, Powell & Fripps' Premises / in Bridge Parade' on Monday 4 September 1826 (Day Book, p. 254). The perspective shows a four-bay, four storeys with attic building. The ground floor windows and door are round arched, the windows above flat-headed with voussoirs, and there are giant pilasters at each front corner. The site measures 37 feet across and approximately 82 feet from front to back on the side of the river. In front of the building is a small, domed toll booth with a bow window, in use as a shop. A map of Bristol (SM 57a/3/3) shows the premises to have been on the south side of the river, on the site of what is now One Victoria Street.
